Rare Antique Chinese Smoking / Opium Pipe:
$225

Antique Chinese Smoking Opium Pipe - very rare original antique, not reproduction.

This has been in my family for as long as I can remember and I believe it was originally brought to England by my late grandfather who fought during WWII in China and Burma.

It is an antique Chinese Opium pipe with accessories. The mouthpiece (which I believe is made from brass, but I am no expert) leads down to the body of the pipe and has a small Chinese emblem attached by cord. From this a metal chain leads to a pair of tweezers which sit in their own section. In the other twin tube or section sits a small red haired brush for cleaning.

The burning section of the pipe is removable for cleaning. In the main body of the pipe there is a removable brass pot for keeping the opium/tobacco inside. The inside of the lid is engraved with Chinese writing and a small picture of some flowers. The bottom of the brass pot has what looks like a hallmark or illustrators signature - hopefully you can see these in the images.

The body of the pipe has a decorative illustration in black green and white of some oriental looking flowers.

A very unusual and collectable piece. I am selling this item as my father passed away recently and we are moving my mum into a retirement flat. I work in the collectables business but am in no way an expert on antiquities - that said, I have a reasonable idea of what something is worth - but I am starting this sale low, to see just how much this item fetches - please don't be fooled by the low starting price - this is a genuine antique and has been in my family for half a century or more.

I welcome any questions you may have about this item, and will happily answer them to the best of my knowledge. I also would love some comments from people who know about these things, regarding it's origins and date etc.

I can also send you further images that you may require. I have described this item as accurately as possible so no returns - if there is anything you are unsure about, please ask before offerding. PayPal payment within two days please.

Thanks for looking!!
